Book Description: POTTER,BEATRIX. ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR: TALE OF PETER RABBIT. This is a charming watercolor SIGNED AND CAPTIONED IN INK BY POTTER and dated August 1927. It was executed on paper measuring 5 1/4" wide x 7 1/4" high and is in fine condition mounted and hinged on acid free board. The signature is lightly faded else fine. The image shows the surprised meeting of Peter and Mr. McGregor in the garden with Peter's back to the reader and Mr. McGregor's startled expression on his bearded face. The actual image measures 3 " wide by 2 1/2 " high, and appears on page 38 of the first edition of the book. 1 inch below the image in Potter's hand is written "Round the end of a cucumber frame / whom should he meet but Mr. McGregor! Beatrix Potter / Aug/ 1927". Judy Taylor explains in her book Beatrix Potter (p. 167-8) that Potter did a series of watercolors to raise money to 'raise a fund to save a strip of foreshore woodland and meadow, near Windermere Ferry, from imminent risk of disfigurement by extensive building and town extension.' Taylor adds that "Many of these pictures were sold in America.and within a year enough money had been raised." She quotes Potter: 'It was a great satisfaction to me to have been able to help the fund through the kindness of my friends in America. Whenever I cross the ferry and look at the pleasant green banks I will think of the good friends across a wider stretch of water.' This is undoubtedly one of these watercolors done by Potter specially to be sold to help this fund, a few of which are in the V&A collection. It is a charming piece of original Potter artwork featuring Peter Rabbit. Bookseller Inventory # 25175

Book Description: Warne & Co., LONDON, 1902. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. No Jacket. author (illustrator). 1st Edition. 24mo - over 5 - 5¾" tall. The First 2 years of the LONDON Publication of "The TALE of PETER RABBIT" have reference books about the various Printings/evolution of changes. I'm fascinated by it myself. Now, excluding the impossible First Private Printings in Late 1901 & Early 1902 from the realm of possibility for we mere mortals, the First few Original Warne Trade Printings are one of my joys to study - and even more to Find! Most collector's know that the First few Warne Printings (late 1902 - mid 1903) were done with patterned leaf end papers and had 97 pages with all illustrations in Color (Private Printings were B&W). The distinction between the printings was the Board Color. The last of these 4 printings changed "wept" to "shed". NOTE: NONE of These Printings had a COPYRIGHT DATE (on the rear of the Title Page)! Now, here is where it gets interesting!! All References deal with the Change in Format in Late 1903 from 97 pages to 85 pages with 4 fewer Illustrations, and the all important introduction of Color Illustrated End Papers. This is the book that mortals may hope to find and own.one of the first reduced Format (Some refer to it as the Second Edition because of that, but it is essentially the same book with all of the story identical to the Original with that one error correction - I leave such labels to the professionals - but I call it First Edition, later Printing). Now, so as not to get hung up on nomenclature, let's go to the First Printings of this version from Late 1903 to early 1904. The First Printing of this Format (Called the fifth Printing overall) is identified by what are referred to as "SINGLE PAGE ENDPAPERS". That doesn't mean there was only one panel. It means the two panels were identical, not with different characters! That is, they match. It is the ONLY PRINTING WITH THESE, Done in September/October 1903. The one thing that the references do not indicate is which of this run did not have any copyright, and which did!! Whatever the answer is, some were done with No Copyright and some with the FIRST APPEARANCE OF ANY COPYRIGHT, 1902! From what I can discern (and I am no expert here), this Printing is the Only One of these early ones to have had a copyright at all! If I'm wrong, some expert please let me know! Whatever the case, The Next Printing done in December 1903 had DOUBLE PAGE END PAPERS (Different Characters on the 2 panels) This is where my interest wanes.by early 1904 additional printings were essentially the same, but with variations in the characters on the end papers, and that gets tedious to figure out. _____________________________ FOR OUR PURPOSES HERE, if you are interested in a 1903 FIRST ILLUSTRATED END PAPER LONDON PRINTING, with what I believe is the RARE 1902 COPYRIGHT, YOU COULD NOT ASK FOR A NICER BOOK FOR CHRISTMAS!! It is essentially a Gem, with Lovely Deep Grey Boards, Perfect paste-on FULL SPINE with Bold Lettering to front & spine, all the dots with the o's and the SINGLE END PAPERS. The ONLY flaw in the book is the dated name in the center of the ffep, 1903. Interior Complete in 85 pages, all illustrations and original end papers. REMARKABLY CLEAN, with only issue being slight looseness of binding with a couple of signatures starting to separate (worst shown in images), but there are NO BROKEN THREADS! I do not re-glue books but the binder would easily be brought together by a pro. NO LOOSE or DAMAGED PAGES! WELL, THERE IT IS.ENJOY!. Bookseller Inventory # 000240

Frontispiece and 26 colour illustrations printed in colour by Edmund Evans after the originals by the author; vignette on the title page in black and white. When Warne issued The Tale if Peter Rabbit in paper boards and in cloth at a higher price, Potter complained that "there was not sufficient difference between the two styles of bindings" and that "if the cloth binding had been more distinctly different, and pretty, there might have been more inducement to buy it". For the sequel to Peter Rabbit Potter designed this binding which sold at 1/6d over standard copies at 1/-. Quinby 16. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-12706503280

Book Description: POTTER,BEATRIX. THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT. Battledore Books 1995. This is a magnificnet Portfolio of prints from the original blocks with an appreciation signed by Maurice Sendak. The original first printing of Peter Rabbit was produced in 1901 by Potter herself after efforts at finding a publisher failed. She privately printed 250 copies of Peter Rabbit with a color frontispiece and 42 black line illustrations (including the cover). The blocks for this printing were only used one other time (for the second printing of 200 copies). Now, after nearly a century, the publisher has located 34 of these original blocks and has produced this wonderfully elaborate portfolio, LIMITED TO 250 NUMBERED SETS. Each illustration is printed on fine acid free paper and each has its own enclosure printed with the caption. All are housed in a cloth clamshell case with a leather label. The images are remarkably sharp and clean. Featured before the prints is a 20 page ESSAY BY MAURICE SENDAK - an appreciation of Beatrix Potter. Sendak's admiration for Potter is longstanding and having the association between Sendak - the greatest contemporary author/illustrator and children's book, and Potter - author of one of the greatest literary works for children, couldn't be more significant. It has been printed by letterpress and SIGNED BY SENDAK! Included with this portfolio is a wonderful block print by Potter made from the original zinc line-cut. It is previously unpublished and is a charming woodcut entitled "Come dance a jig, to my Granny's Pig. The print is housed in a printed folder and is accompanied by a descriptive commentary by Ann Hobbs (Curator and the V&A). This is altogether a most wonderful item for anyone who appreciates Beatrix Potter. Bookseller Inventory # 17370

Considered one of the greatest literary works for children, The Tale of Peter Rabbit was first privately published in 1901 in a limited edition of 250 copies and again three months later in 1902 (limited to 200 copies). Now, after nearly a century, thirty-four of the original line blocks used have been located and properly identified; they are separately re-printed for the third time only -- on fine mould-made deckle-edged 100% cotton acid free paper in a special limited edition of 250 numbered sets, each print individually certified with a stamp on its reverse attesting to its limitation. Production and design has been organized by Iain Bain — noted printing and wood engraving soecialist — working alongside Ælecto Historical Editions, who have re-struck original Audubon plates for the New York Historical Society and more recently were employed to create a definitive facsimile of William the Conqueror’s Domesday Book for the British Government. Renowned and celebrated author/artist Maurice Sendak has written an original appreciation for this series of prints, which has been letterpress printed as an accompanying booklet and signed by him on the numbered colophon leaf. The project has been coordinated by antiquarian children’s books authority Justin G. Schiller, with kind permission of Frederick Warne & Co. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # ABB041
